Niko was Eva’s long-suffering husband. In the beginning of Kill Eva Season 3, poor Niko, was in a rehab facility after surviving an encounter with Villanelle at the end of Kill Eva Season 2. Villanelle murdered his girlfriend Gemma (Emma Pierson), who was romantically interested in Niko. in the Kill Eva Season 3, Episode 3, “Meetings Have Biscuits”, Eve was stunned to learn that Niko had returned to Poland to get some distance between the two. Indeed, far from the danger and insanity of his wife’s obsession with Villanelle, Niko had happily entered a simple new life as a bread supplier at the beginning of Still Got It. Despite her hostility to Eva’s husband, whom she mockingly called “the mustache”, it wasn’t Villanelle who killed Niko – it was Dasha (Harriet Walter), Villanelle’s mentor and current handler.
On the orders of Helene (Camille Cottin), a senior member of The Twelve, Dasha orchestrated events so that Eva witnessed Niko’s murder. Dasha pretended to be an old Polish woman named Magda and killed one of the older recipients of Nikos bread deliveries, stole Nikos cell phone and wrote Eve a text message pretending to be Niko. She invited Eva to Poland under the auspices of mending her marriage, and when Eva arrived, Dasha killed Niko by poking him through the neck with a pitchfork. Attached to the pitchfork was a note that said, “I still have it!” That framed Villanelle for Niko’s murder. Dasha’s goal was to finally drive a wedge between Eve and Villanelle to curb the erratic behavior of her protege. It was a cruelly violent and undeserved end to the unfortunate Niko; Eva’s husband is an innocent victim of her Villanelle obsession and handling of MI6, who never fully understood what happened to his wife.
Kill Eva was certainly never shy about killing main characters. Eve’s friend on MI5, Bill Pargrave (David Haig), was the first main character killed, followed by Frank Haleton (Darren Boyd), who was both Bill and Eve’s chief at MI5. In the meantime we support actors who were part of Eve’s MI6 team Kill Eva Seasons 1 and 2, such as Elena Felton (Kirby Howell-Baptiste) and Jess (Nina Sosanya), were simply written out of the series. Hugo Tiller (Edward Bluemel) was almost killed by The Twelve’s assassin Raymond (Adrian Scarborough), although Hugo is still alive. Kill Eva added some new characters in season 3, but the series mercilessly thinned out the original cast. Unfortunately, many fans liked the eliminated characters more than newbies like Bear (Turlough Convery) or Jamie (Danny Sapani).
However, it is interesting that Villanelle killed Bill and Frank Kill Eva In season 1, she has nothing to do with the murders of Kenny and Niko in season 3. At the moment, Villanelle doesn’t even know that she killed, nor does she know that she is held responsible for Niko’s death. Villanelle will certainly not shed tears for Niko as he was her rival for Eva’s affection. In fact, the only thing Villanelle ever wanted from Eva’s husband was his pastoral cake recipe (which she got). In the meantime, the identity of Kenny’s killer is still a mystery, although Dasha is also the most likely culprit.
But dead with Niko now, Kill EvaThe opening list has been ruthlessly reduced to the last four, which seem untouchable – or at least Eve and Villanelle seem to be. The series, which was extended for season four, couldn’t continue without Sandra Oh’s title heroine or Jodie Comer’s magnetic assassin. But there are no limits Kill EvaBecause of the bloodshed, fans fear whether Konstantin or Carolyn will also be killed before everything is said and done.
